Good catch and I’m glad you brought this up! Let me first say both are true. Allow me to explain; 2018 has been a rollercoaster for me. The year started off with a job change from Font Awesome to another company as a software architect. Shortly after that, I left the company to do my own thing. Since June I’ve been building my startup so I’ve been a “poor college student” since I’ve been in college. Only now is that changing.
When it comes to 127k annually that number is hypothetical. I calculated it as an estimate. I break down the numbers in the article to give the best idea of how much can be made and how much I’m making currently. If I continue on this track I’ll make around that figure by this time next year. Depending on how much I work the number could be as high as 179k or as low as 98k. It’s up to me and how much I want to work.
I’ve only just started my business so I’ve had to take the time to get clients and begin making money. For a while, I was only making around $1,000 a month. This was just enough to pay my bills and the rest went to the startup. In fact, I began refereeing soccer in my hometown while going to college to help my startup and further fund my runway while I attract clients. Now that I’ve done that the projected numbers are as I shared.
I hope this clears things up more. I wasn’t trying to be sneaky in either article; however, life has changed drastically for me over the past months so both statements were actually true. Again, thank you for pointing this out!
